The three compilation movies for the original Mobile Suit Gundam series are now free to watch on the official GundamInfo YouTube channel.
The movies feature Japanese audio with English, Chinese, and Korean subtitles. According to Twitter user Tom Aznable, the uploads feature the movies’ original audio tracks instead of the special editions’ audio.
The respective official descriptions for the movies are as follows:

Mobile Suit Gundam I and II were both released in 1981, while the third movie came out in 1982. The original series debuted in 1979 and ran for 47 episodes. Various series, OVAs, and movies that took place in its Universal Century setting were released over the years. The latest, Hathaway’s Flash, was postponed due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
GundamInfo previously made the compilation movies available for a limited time in 2016. This new upload seems to be permanent, but we’ll keep an eye out for official announcements and provide updates if necessary.
